Folger Commercial Entrant

While we were doing research on women who have better memory retention by drinking coffee, we noticed that Folgers is willing to help you age with more awareness with a free sample. We call that great timing. They also invite you to make your own commercial on their site, and they will donate $1.00 to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (up to $150,000) each time you create one or vote for others’. We figure that you will get such a rush from the caffeine in their gourmet coffee that your creativity will kick into maximum mode.

Eclipse WatchIf you are as big a fan as we are for TokyoFlash’s distinctive watches, maybe now is the time to treat yourself to one of their elite watches, such as their classic Eleeno Eclipse Watch for $112.99. In honor of Uminohi (Ocean Day,) a holiday for expressing gratitude for gifts from the sea and the prosperity of Japan, they are offering a coupon good for anything from ¥1000 (~$8.00) to ¥5000 (~$40.00.) That’s a fairly decent deal considering many of their exclusive models run only in the $60.00 price range. The only catch is that you must use your coupon before July 16.

4th of JulyHappy Fourth of July from MOBIVOX! The company that offers free and unlimited Skype calls without download has decided to pay back its customers with international calls today up to $10.00 with whichever phone you choose. With the service, if the recipient is also a subscriber all calls are free and if not, the rates start at just 1.9 cents a minute with no contract or connection fee.

Panasonic Blu-ray

Still on the fence about discs? The Blu-ray Disc Association has launched a promotion through September 30 that will offer five free movies with any Blu-ray player, including a Sony PlayStation 3. Similar to a deal that HD DVD ran with Toshiba earlier this year, 21 movie picks include such choices as “Pearl Harbor,” “The Italian Job,” “Kiss of the Dragon,” and one of our fave Brooks’ films, “Blazing Saddles.” The company also reminds you that if you purchase a Panasonic DMP-BD10A, you can receive another 5 films. Although we appreciate the offer, we still think we will stick to NetFlix for the time being and save our movie-catching budget for when the war is over.

Start MobileStart Mobile is responding to our desire for musical ringtones that can cost as much as or more than a full song price. M60s are minute long tracks that are downloadable to cell phones and/or mobile devices. The service also encourages independent musicians, bands, producers, and DJs to contribute with their own noble efforts, the only stipulation being that they must meet the 1 minute time requirement. To make the service user friendlier, Start Mobile has offered hundreds of the M60s free of charge for the next 60 days. Check out their site and try a few previews to see how much variety and talent can be had for the asking. Our props to the little dot-com that could.

The other day we gave you a first-hand look at some of the new features in Parallels 3.0. The guys over at Parallels just dropped us an email to let us know that the new version has just been released. You can now head on over to the Parallels website to buy version 3.0, which features Snapshots, SmartSelect, and 3D GPU graphic support. We will be heading over to Parallels HQ in an hour or so to get a first-hand look at all of the cool new features, and should have that video available for you here later this evening. Until then, check out our Parallels 3.0 gallery in case you missed it.

Star Wars M&MsDoes George Lucas offer his Star Wars licensing to everybody who asks? While we were creating our Andru M&M, we discovered these Collectible, Limited Edition M&M Star Wars Figurines. Our guess is that the public was not running rampant to snatch these 6-inch figurines up, for what used to carry a price of $45.00 apiece has now become $22.50. If you are a big enough Jedi freak and want to add them to your collection, you can find them on M&M’s site.

Anna Nicole PaintingOur eBay pick of the week has to be an Anna Nicole signed, original self-portrait.  The description states that the painting was done by the model between 2002 and 2003 and features her signature. The ongoing auction will close April 15. Its posting states, “This is a rare opportunity to own something so personal from Anna Nicole Smith!” The seller is hoping to make $1,700,000.00 out of the sale. Considering that the image portrayed could be almost anyone and isn’t even a blonde, we were not surprised that there are no bids as yet.
